one of the things that has stuck with me is yon black and brown men, young boys are not accepting. culturally part of it is societal but the dinosaur had the ice age. we have education and technology. they did not make the adjustment it is not here. if the black brown mail this not make the adjustment they will not be here. we have to make it safe for our children to be smart, respectful, individua ls because what i was a boy i wanted to be excepted so bad i or myself to me i try. i will never let that happen again. to say if i cannot change the people around me you have to be afraid to stand by yourself that is the clearest it will ever be. there is a tendency to be accepted so bad people have all kinds of estimations but a man would do anything to take care of the family. not that i would not do that. and a woman sought a man who do anything you could do it every wanted the you will deal with the man. but we left young boys like you by yourself to figure out. so that is to make it safe quote for the boys to grow.

they -- when brown versus board of education passed, georgia's answer was to just throw up these schools to supposedly give us equal, separate, but equal facilities so i only -- i only attended segregated schools, but in those schools, we had people who cared. we had teachers who cared, but they all -- one thing they drilled into us in the church, in our homes, and in the schools was that they expected us to do good. they expected us to go and do good and reach back and help others.

. the impact could be just as significant as the well-known brown v. board of education. the landmark supreme court case in which they declared the state law establishing separate public schools for black and white students was unconstitutional. some seem to think that one of the candidates, and i won't name which one stands for turning black back the clock in many ways so the minority voter participation will play an integral role in picking the winner of this year's presidential election. the town hall meeting tonight will discuss who and why the minority voter participation and awareness can bring power to the previously disenfranchised racial and ethnic minority. the moderator of tonight's meeting is none other than roland martin. you heard him on cnn and you've heard him on that on joyner morning show. he's a national award winning journalist and is also in author, commentator for the cable network where he hosts washington watch with roland martin and a cnn analyst appearing on a variety of the network shows. i'm certainly everyone here has seen or heard of roland martin. so without fur
the sense of urgency and commitment to closing those opportunity gaps that we need to. in brown vs. board five decades ago to look at the staggering inequities, inequality of opportunity by any measure we have to get better faster. all those things compel us to act. the president provided extraordinary leadership and understands what is at stake. congress's current assumption is supportive and we have to look at this together with politics and ideology aside. we have to educate our way to a better economy and vienna different place. how do we get there? a pretty compelling case that that is the best investment we can make. if we put our three and four-year-olds into kindergarten, we start to close the achievement gaps and close the opportunity get. if we don't do that we are constantly playing catch up. for primary to middle to high school, many colleges. young people taking remedial class in college and simply not ready. invest in early childhood education is so important. i have been public saying our department has been part of the problem. this is one of those areas where we didn't in
if they are small and brown and eat strange foods and worship gods of whom americans have never heard." >> that mean that you treat the people as, you know, slave. >> did americans treat -- >> no. >> -- the vietnamese this way? >> i don't think so. you have a good intention, but again, as i said, you know, the lack of understanding, tradition, custom, and some of the time, because, you know, you are too impatient. so -- and then, you know, the way you treat other -- especially the weak and small people gives them the impression that, you know, you treat them as a slave. >> let me ask -- >> which i know is not true. >> let me ask you about another person who has an image in this country that you write about in here, and you say it's the wrong image. there's the famous picture of general lone assassinating a vietcong on the streets of vietnam, and you say that's been unfair to him, that he was a good friend of yours and a good man. >> well, before i expressed my own opinion, i can tell today that even mr. adam, the one that took this picture -- >> eddie adams. >> yeah. i remember i think recently in a
mayor in state history. is that correct? yeah, so he graduated from brown university with a degree in urban studies and during his time at brown he worked as a youth career counselor. he was also on the governors lgbt commission and the main focus of his administration at the moment are early childhood literacy, building an economy focused around art, innovation and technology, and supporting local and community policing initiatives. as the students we are glad to have here as well, rachel stanley is a junior at elon college majoring in international studies with all sorts of minors, political science, and she has worked with refugees and her region. she is the president of halal on her campus and the millennial values fellow so we are pleased that she is back. last but not least, mohammad usman is a senior at depauw university majoring in urban policy and conflict studies with a minor in religious studies. he was a part of the national bioethics bowl, the winning team in the last year so congratulations on that. and before attending depauw was a special assistant in advocate for a
wondered how scott brown one in massachusetts. i lived there and i talk there. there are such things as democrats in massachusetts, but there are more enrolled independent voters. over 40% of voters. usa today said that people are fleeing from the political parties, they don't want to be tied to this political party. they don't want to give situation where you have a congress, where if you want to be on the committee, sir, i do not know you, but let me assume that you are a whiz at math and you know finance and economics and you want to be on the ways and means committee. everything fits. i would say to you if i was one of the party leaders. you know, i am willing to put you on the committee. you can make good laws, but you have to promise before we give you that committee position that you are going to stick with the party line on the these things. you haven't even heard a hearing and you haven't seen the bills, but you have to promise that you're going to stick to the party. that is the way that it works. here are some of my recommendations, proposals, in 2006, the people of washin
to the public schools and when i got into brown studied urban studies there and unlike a lot of folks my age to give back to the city that i thought had given me the opportunity that i had. holyoke is a rich history and is the first city to the committee to make papers we are the paper city. like a lot of cities on the northeast we move the industrial city but folks came in to holyoke and a lot of the factories moved overseas. the unemployment rate is larger or how your domestic and national average about 50% of the population is latino and mostly puerto rican defense and very diverse city as well. so i got elected last november and there's four of us in the election the nonpartisan from the local level to start against each other in november and i went with 53% of the vote and became the mayor in january at the age of 22 and i turned 23 and i will be 24 in january so i quickly getting up there. [laughter] it is a very stressful job, but also very, very rewarding. there's nothing more special than being the mayor in a city that you were born and where your family still lives and your friends
, montana, new mexico, wisconsin, michigan, we have a lot of great seats, defend scott brown, save him and massachusetts, and there's other places we could be in trouble. maine, we'll probably lose that. i'm a realist. we'll win the senate and house. here's the real challenge. republicans get one more chance. they don't get to do again what they did in 2004, which is not take their mandate and reform. they don't get two years. i hope speaker boehner and soon to be majority leader mcconnell sit down with mitt romney that they have 100 days to reform medicare, reform social security, got to get spending under control, and it can't be like business as usual. they will be tempted to do that. republicans hold meetings and think about it a long time. they can't do that. they absolutely have to come out of the gate, blasting for reform, they have to rebuild the military, get the 313 chips, restore the terrible cuts the put in place. if they do it, democrats screams, the media screams, but the american people applaud and will be rewarded with a long period of time in time and power. if not, we
steve brown for their tremendous work and literally hundreds of volunteers working on workgroups and task groups as early as with margaret chan and i'd like to also thank andy stabile of with his help over the years. not just as members are engaged in our work, we've been very pleased with the knowledge and level of engagement with administrator michael huerta, first as official while serving as a deputy administrator, michael has become even more, not less active in our work since been elevated to the role of acting administrator. the disinterest of working closely with the aviation community, i am confident in our ability to overcome barriers to implementing nextgen. you commented about succession planning and i am pleased with my chairmanship sunset and i will remain on the committee, bill ayer, chairman of the alaska air group, bill has been formally leading the group as chairman and ceo, who is an experienced aviator will be taken over the chairmanship on a go forward basis as we pass the baton at the air force base here in october. and if i may, the greater skies initiative
. otherwise, i'm completely in line with you. i voted for ron paul in '88. i voted for paul brown, i think -- i can't remember exactly what year it was that he ran as a libertarian. i voted for ross perot once. i'm a very open-minded person but i watch things very closely. >> host: thanks for calling, gary johnson, any reaction to that caller? >> guest: well, just that i think that by going to a national consumption tax, one federal national consumption tax. i think that really is a lot more fair. i would like to point out that it ended up being cost neutral over a fairly short amount of time. so, let's use a can of coke as an example. a can of coke sells for a dollar today. in that dollar is 23% worth of imbedded tax. that's federal tax that coca-cola pays. corporate tax, as -- with social security match, medicare, unemployment, all that goes away. no more with holding from your payroll check. social security, medicare, unemployment would come out of the proceeds of the fair tax. so you bleed all that existing tax out of the coke can that sells for a buck. coke doesn't have to sell that c
for ron paul. i voted for paul brown. i cannot remember what year he ran. i voted for ross perot once. i am very open-minded better watch things closely. >> host: thank you for calling. gary johnson and the reaction? >> guest: by going to a national consumption tax one federal national consumption tax is more fair. it is cost neutral over a short amount of time. a can of coca-cola sells $1 today within that is 23% of embedded tax federal tax that coca-cola pays common corporate tax, social security match, medicare, unemploymen t. all of that goes away. no more withholding from the paycheck. so security and medicare comes out of the proceeds. if you believe the existing tax out then they do not have to sell that at $1 anymore now they sell it at $0.80. if you think they will continue to sell it at $1, it is free market and competition. coal is competitive. it will sell about $0.80 which is cost neutral. then to have a raging debate over how you implement one federal consumption tax. was never read tax we get to less of. today we tax them come and we're getting less of that. added score it
and are they even still that strong nowadays when you have scott brown -- sorry, scott walker in wisconsin able to defeated them a couple of times. in ohio they did take some hits. curious as to hear your view. >> on the future i can't really say. i can just go back to 2010 where three of the top five spending outside groups were unions. that was reported in "the wall street journal" and i think there's a whole slew of research to back out of. maybe not on television but in other ways the unions spend money. at this point they're very strong stomach look, like any other -- >> look like any other sector, they would have a problem, and i think that's the case for everything, for everybody, or a company. to have to think about new and unique ways of getting at the heart of what they care about. there's a whole history whether it's civil rights or women's rights for workers rights what people remember what unions were created in the first place. most of the world today has no recollection of why that happen. they don't know that god work 18 hours, you got paid a number that couldn't even let you li
perspective where president obama is clearly going to run very well there. canned scott brown withstand the blue tide fair and right now, the democrats are doing well. you have a tea party backed candidate in indiana, richard mourdock and richard luke are in the primary. that is a very tight race but you have solid republican candidates. i was in missouri may be a month ago but in arizona where democrats are competitive and i think it just shows that one these races are still fluid. you can be and decided and we can say the race for president started with undecided voters yesterday. for some of these voters the senate race, it's going to be a couple of weeks before they really engage. the other thing that is going on here is, i don't know if people vote in races like a chess game but i do think you know, people pick and choose one from a i'll m and one from i obey. clearly one thing we haven't talked about is the fundamental dissatisfaction americans have with government and as they go from president incented and governor, how do they make those choices? >> look, i have to agree with fr
there and went to the city schools. when i got into brown i studied urban studies fair and unlike a lot of folks my age i just come back to my hometown and give back to the city that i thought i given me the opportunities that i had. holyoke has a rich history. it was the first place involve the ball in the first industrial city in the entire united states and the first to make paper or so we are nicknamed the paper city. like a lot of cities in the northeast we were once a booming industrial city but at the same time folks came into holyoke and a lot of the factories closed or moved overseas so we right now have a high of 11% employment -- unemployment rate. about 50% of our population is latino mostly puerto rican descent and a diversity as well. so i got elected last november. there were four of us running in the election. and nonpartisan race on the local level so the top vote getters faced off against each other in november. i won with 53% of the vote and i became mayor in january at the age of 22. then i turned 23 and i will be 24 and january so i'm quickly getting up there. [laughter] is
was campaigning my entire senior year at brown. i came back against other folks established in politics. i think people recognize my election is unique and people wanted something different. so the folks on the council just gets tiring after a while. we really want to support, for example, to be realized. i think there's some great veteran city counselor. you know, joe mcgivern one for example a supporter of me to make sure we get the mayor the tools he needs to proceed, beat displeasure with? priorities for the city, so i found while people will be opposed to never vote for me, it is really about the people and keep in touch with the people. when i'm having a bad day or politics as discouraging me coming in now, in an afternoon, for example, just walk outside of city hall and have a conversation with someone saying you're doing a great job. i remember meeting you last year. forever negative story of his job, there's 10 more people coming up in thanking you for everything you're doing. that is the most important part of the job. it's not about people with the money, people like to marry you. it'
